Out of thin AirNetflix may launch a disc-free streaming-only plan in the U.S., Facebook can block you from stalking your ex, and Apple announces new iLife, FaceTime for the Mac, and a new line of ultra-thin MacBook Airs.
It's Thursday, October 21, 2010, I'm Natalie Del Conte and it's time to get loaded. Steve Jobs announced a new line of McBook Airs on Wednesday. This is a much needed update. It is super duper thin. They come in 13- and 11-inch varieties. Jobs also showed us some features of Lion, the companies up incoming operating system as well as a new suite of iLife program to make things movie making and photo album much easier. Apple also added Facetime chat to Mac, so you can video chat with iPhone for users from your desktop. For complete summary of all Apple's news head on over the CNET.com. We have a lunch date for the boxy box, this is the set-top box that brings the internet to your TV. We have high hopes for this box, so hopefully it lives up when it comes out on November 10th. Arise and set to start selling the Samsung Galaxy Tablet on November 11th. This is Samsung's iPad competitor. It's a 7-inch tablet that runs Google Android operating system. It will access horizons network with plans starting at 20 dollars per month. It hits stores on October 28th starting at $499. Google Docs now supports drag and drop. This lets you pull images or files directly from desktop into your document. You can take them from your hard drive from URL or in Google Image Search. This works in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Facebook also supports drag and drop. This doesn't work from desktop to your browser, though it's only within browser. You can reorder photos and albums by just dragging and dropping. This is the new part of the Facebook photos, which also allows for high-resolution photo storage. And Facebook may help you stop stalking your ex. A rumored new feature would not allow you to see photos of anyone with whom you have ended a relationship. So, think twice before you take someone off of your relationship status. You may not get to see their lovely mug with their new main squeeze, which probably for the best. Netflix may go disc free zone. The company maybe set to want a subscription where you don't have to get disc delivered to your house at all, but rather just sign up to stream movies and shows. This is an option in Canada, but not in the US yet. And finally sex.com has sold for 13 million dollars. This has been up for grabs for a months and the winning bidder is a Caribbean corporation called Clover Holdings. We don't know exactly what they will do with it yet, but I have pretty good idea. There you see your headlines for today. I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natalie Del Conte for CNET.com and you just been loaded.
